AHEPA Scholarship Application Reminder

AHEPA Scholarship Application Reminder

Our local AHEPA Chapter #61 in Reading will be sponsoring a scholarship program this year.  Our parish youth who will be graduating from high school in 2014 and continuing their education at an accredited institution of higher learning are eligible.  Contact Ahepan Athan Dialectos for a scholarship application and related information at 610-762-0477 or if interested in applying for this scholarship.  The completed application and requested documentation are due on or before April 27, 2014.

In addition to our local AHEPA Chapter scholarship program, The AHEPA Power District No. 4 Scholarship Fund is also available to our parishioners.  Applicants for scholarships will be selected from high school graduates who are about to enter an accredited institution of higher learning, or from students already attending such institutions.  An applicant must have either a parent or grandparent that is a member of Power District #4 of AHEPA.  If interested in the district level scholarship program, simply forward an e-mail request to the AHEPA Chapter #61 President, Dr. George J. Giovanis, at  to secure a copy of the scholarship application.  Include your mailing address and telephone number with your request.  Review carefully the rules governing awarding the AHEPA district level scholarship which is different from our local AHEPA Chapter scholarship program.  It is the applicant’s responsibility to return the AHEPA District No. 4 application postmarked no later than April 17, 2014.

President's Report

§  Our AHEPA Sunday festivities were a huge success last Sunday, March 16th.  We recognized and honored our Ahepans for their service to our Church and community.  We also celebrated our Church’s 100th year birthday.  Following Church service in which an Artoclasia and prayers were conducted for the health of our members, we has a “photo-op” of all of our members.  I counted approximately 60 to 70 Ahepans in attendance for this event!  Thanks to Chris Kraras, Stam Zervanos, and all of our Ahepan “Kooks”, we had a fabulous Lenten luncheon for all parishioners.  A special thanks for Brother Gust Kraras for composing the AHEPA Sunday booklet publication.  What a special day for our AHEPA fraternal order!
